NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Bones is a big boy with a big heart. He also has long legs, a desire for freedom and limited recall. These traits have made Bones a little challenging to contain, so he is looking for a home with super-high fencing and people who are around a fair bit.

Delightful with people of all sizes, Bones loves to hang out, enjoys a walk and chill time with his humans. Bones is friendly with other dogs and has lived well with them, as well as attending doggy day care and participating in pack walks. Bones is housetrained and travels well in the car. He has a crate, which he uses for downtime when his family is home or out for short periods.

While relaxed and friendly, Bones takes his food and treats seriously and can resource guard these, so is best separated from other dogs when he is eating or enjoying chewing on his namesake. He has a strong prey drive, so is not suited to living with small and pocket pets.

Bones would love to live with another dog or dogs in a family environment where he has plenty of interaction with his people. Secure fencing and the chance to be inside will help keep Bones where he belongs. Rewards-based training and engagement games to improve his recall, as well as further training in using his crate will help Bones manage his quests for contact and freedom. If you enjoy a pack and are looking for some life-affirming big dog energy in your life, Bones may well be your guy. He would love you to submit an adoption application.

Medical Notes:

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
